French Breakfast radishes are an heirloom variety first recorded in Europe in 1879. Despite their “French Breakfast” moniker, and their popularity in Parisian markets, the radishes were cultivated in France but not consumed as a breakfast item. The “breakfast” portion came later when it became a staple breakfast item in England from 1837 to 1901 (Victorian England). The attractive gourmet variety, with mild peppery flavor and crisp texture, was regularly served with toast, cress, and potted shrimp.
